The problem with getting a job in anthro with only a B.A. is that you
have no area of specialty, no time to focus. Even with a M.A. it's
hard to find work in the field (except archaeology). You haven't been
specific as to what area of anthro you are interested in, which makes
it difficult to talk about particulars.
